The recommendations of the science academies of the G7 states will inform the deliberations of the heads of state and government during the G7 summit at Schloss Elmau from Sunday, 26 June to Tuesday, 28 June. For more than 15 years, the science academies of the G7 states have been publishing joint statements on selected topics on the summit agenda. As part of the German G7 presidency, the Leopoldina ‒ as the German National Academy of Sciences ‒ has been officially mandated by the German government to lead the science-based policy advice for the summit, the so-called Science7 process. The Leopoldina last had this role in 2015.

About the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina:
As the German National Academy of Sciences, the Leopoldina provides independent science-based policy advice on matters relevant to society. To this end, the Academy develops interdisciplinary statements based on scientific findings. In these publications, options for action are outlined; making decisions, however, is the responsibility of democratically legitimized politicians. The experts who prepare the statements work in a voluntary and unbiased manner. The Leopoldina represents the German scientific community in the international academy dialogue. This includes advising the annual summits of Heads of State and Government of the G7 and G20 countries. With 1,600 members from more than 30 countries, the Leopoldina combines expertise from almost all research areas. Founded in 1652, it was appointed the National Academy of Sciences of Germany in 2008. The Leopoldina is committed to the common good.
